How do I know that it is a matter of luck? Well, I don't, but what I do know is that Villanova has already lost the same number of fumbles as they lost all of last season despite fumbling five fewer times. Villanova has fumbled seven times this season and lost six of them. That is a huge, and frankly, unsustainable rate. I expect that fumbling will remain a problem for this team, and I think they will do it at a greater volume than most other teams, but I think that the ratio will be closer to 50/50 for the rest of the season. Why do I know this? Because that's what it's been like in the past three seasons, even in 2011, when Villanova was exceptionally bad.
Villanova fumbles (lost) by season
2011: 20 (11)
2012: 12 (6)
2013: 7 (6)
Luck, it's a thing. Fix the fumbling problem though, seven times in two games isn't fun.
